    ERROR:
    
    The executable tar.exe doesn't exist on this system or isn't in the PATH.
    Please download the GNU tar executable from the following address:
    
        ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/pub/gnu/tar/tar-1.12.msdos.exe
    
    Save the file as ‘tar.exe’ in the C:\WINDOWS directory, or to another
    directory in the PATH, then rerun this script again.
    
    GNU Tar version 1.12 is the recommended tar for DOS to use.

  2. If tar.exe is not installed, download tar-1.12.msdos.exe from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/pub/gnu/tar/tar-1.12.msdos.exe. This version of tar.exe works on 32-bit Windows only.
  3. Save the download to the C:\Windows directory and rename the file to tar.exe.
  4. Enter the following command to verify if gzip.exe is installed:

    D:\tar_teradata_client_packages

    If gzip.exe is not installed, a message similar to the following appears during the creation of the tar file:
    Notice: The executable gzip.exe is not found. Download from www.gzip.org
    for MSDOS to automatically compress the output tar file to a gzip file.
  5. If gzip.exe is not installed, download the MSDOS version of gzip.exe from gzip home page. The MSDOS version of gzip.exe works on 32-bit Windows only.
  6. Save the download to the C:\Windows directory.
